2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Grabbed as part of a mix-a-six pack just to try it. 12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Two inch white head disappears quickly leaving a thin white ring. No lacing. Beer is a pale golden color. Aroma is pumpkin at first but fades to a spicy cider like aroma. Taste is sweet with a lot of spice especially cinnamon and nutmeg. Really no hints of pumpkin noticeable. Very thin texture. Light bodied beer with light carbonation. Overall this beer is near the bottom of my list of pumpkin ales. Very artificial tasting to me. Was worth a try but unlikely to purchase again.

Nicely balanced pumpkin ale without an excessive use of pumpkin spices frequently found in this style of seasonal beers. Light cloves and nutmeg spices with the background roasted pumpkin merging with the light caramel malt backbone.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Pours golden yellow with a think white head. Aroma is of pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin. Slightly carbonated. Tastes of pumpkin pie spice and a hint of pumpkin, along with malts giving off a rustic, outdoorsy taste, like that of hay. It’s light, with a decent flavor. Not a bad beer to drink for the fall. I’d buy it again.

Not bad. Much more spice than pumpkin. Cinnamon, nutmeg, some others here and there. Orange-amber color. Not much on the aroma.

Bottle. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has mild spice and a touch of pumpkin pie. Medium sweetness. Lighter body and medium to lower carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear orange-yellow with small off-white head that goes very quickly.
Light aroma of pie spice and ginger, modest pumpkin. Taste is light malt, sweet cereal, corn, pumpkin, a bit of spice.
Definite sweetness is less pronounced than it might be, while light body with sprightly carbonation makes it seem more like a soda. The effect is offbeat, OK for a session, but there are better alternatives.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s labeled as KBC Pumpkin Ale. Bright brassy gold color with a small rocky beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest. Tangy bready malt flavor has all the obligatory pumpkin pie spice flavors. Light bodied and indistinguishable from rest of the glut of Pumpkin brews.
